Letter to the editor: Please use common sense

I plead for everyone to use common sense. What is common sense? I believe it is thinking out the result of our actions before we act. Let us not be selfish and just think of the thrill we get from our actions. Our parents, friends and many others are affected by what we do.

What prompts me to write this? I just witnessed on television the latest trend for your people – setting themselves on fire. What a thrill. Result: hospitalization with burns. If a loved one resorted to this, would it affect you? I caution you, we must think through the results of our actions before we act. — Lola Driessen, Elk River
